  1. Hello friends, this is my latest built. The IMAM Ro.37 A.30 was a two-seater Italian reconnaissance , a product of the Industrie Meccaniche Aeronautiche Meridionali (IMAM) company. Powered by the FIAT A.30 RA, a 600-hp, liquid-cooled V-12, the Ro 37 could reach a top speed of 199 mph (332 kph) at 13,120 ft (4037 m), could land at 67 mph (112 kph), and had a service ceiling of 21,976 ft (6762 m). The kit is the Special Hobby Ro.37 1/48 and is finished in a medium quality, grey soft plastic with recessed panel lines; the level of detail is modest. The kit contains a set of photo etched parts, resin parts and a high quality decal sheet. Overall a well engineered kit.

  3. Hi all! I am back after a bit of a break with my latest completed model, the 1/48 Special Hobby AJ 37 Viggen from 7 sqd of the Swedish Air Force. The kit is actually very nice to build, and has some really nice detail. There are a few errors in the kit, all of which are well known here and other sites. I myself was not too concerned with these issues, as they did not bother me, and by doing an in-flight build was able to avoid two of the bigger issues (canard flaps droop on the ground and way too thin wheels and tires). That also did not keep me from making some mistakes of my own on this build, mostly concerning the weapons load. Apparently AJ 37s did not carry anything on the outer pylons due to vibration (although this was fixed on the JA and other variants), and I mixed green training munitions with live RB 75s. Oops. I chose to do the Fields and Meadows splinter scheme, because OF COURSE. LOL This is without a doubt the most challenging paint and mask job I have ever done, and it is not even close. This makes the F-16C Blizzard scheme look like a walk in the park. Even with the DN Model masks this was extremely tedious, and required much touch up when finished, and I didn't get some areas exactly right. But all in all, I was very pleased when I removed the masks! The paints are all Gunze Aqueous except the black, which is Tamiya Rubber Black. I think the colors are a very nice match. When I think of the Viggen, I think of a few things that make this aircraft iconic. The unique shape. The fabulous green splinter scheme. And of course the flourescent red day-glo practice markings! I couldn't resist putting them on my model. For these I used the Euro Decal Viggen Day Glo sheet. I did have some problems with this sheet, unfortunately. First, these decals are very delicate, and tore at even the slightest resistance once place on the model. In fact, I originally was going to do "34" for sq 6, but I managed to destroy the #3 as I tried to place it. So I changed the number to 45 and had to be verrrrrry careful with the #4 , #5, and the vertical fin numbers. But I will say the Euro Decals are much brighter and look much closer to the real thing than the decals in the kit and the TwoBobs sheet. I also changed up my in-flight stand set up slightly with this model. Instead of the armature wire I had been using, I decided to try using flat aluminum bar. That worked out very well and I think it looks much cleaner and more eye pleasing. I will be using this method from now on. Here is what I used in this build: Kit: 1/48 Special Hobby AJ 37 Viggen Decals: TwoBobs AJ/JA 37 Viggen, Euro Decals Viggen Day Glo numbers Aftermarket: CMK Bofors M/70 Rocket Pods, Eduard Maverick Missiles, Hasegawa Weapons Set C (for Aim-9Js to simulate Rb 24Js), Master Model Pitot set, and DN Model Splinter Camo Masks Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Gunze Aqueous H308, H309 Dark Green, H58 Light Green, and H310 Brown, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Blue, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash on the underside and black areas, and Deep Brown for the topside. Now on to the pics... Hope you enjoy!
  4. Hi Here are my last builds with these two Curtiss fighters from Special Hobby. First, this is the P-40N-5 s/n 42-105233 from the 89th Fighter Squadron / 80th Fighter Group in 1944 and based in Assam, East India. She was painted with Olive Drab and Neutral Grey from the Aqueous Gunze range. Decals came from the box. I added the resin wheels from CMK 72295 and the seat from 72294. Second is the Kittyhawk Mk. Ia AK772 of the No 112 Squadron RAF in spring 1942 somewhere in Libya. The paint came from Gunze for the Dark Earth and Middle Stone and from Xtracrylics for the Azure Blue. Inside the cockpit, I used CMK 72301 side panels and 72293 seat. Both builds will be published in Tamiya Model Magazine French Edition. Comment are welcome. Patrick

  6. Hi Here is my new finished kit with this reconnaissance fighter Dassault Mirage F1 CR from Special Hobby. This one is N°603 #33-NR of Escadron de Reconnaissance ER02.033 in 1988 in Chad. The shark mouth was added before going back to Reims AB, France. The vanilla/chocolate camouflage is typical of the Chad operations during the 1980s. She was loaded with two 1200 L fuel tanks, two Magic air-to-air missiles, a Phimat chaff dispenser under the starboard wing and a Barracuda ECM pod under the port wing. Patrick
  7. In the middle of last year, despite only limited flying experience, I got to fly and land a Ryan PT-22 based a few hours from me. This was my first landing flying anything, never mind a WW2 taildragger!! I'd love to build a model of the aircraft I flew, but don't want to spend a fortune, so figured the 1/72 scale Special Hobby version would be ideal, only to find out it seems to be out of production I'm in the United Kingdom, so ideally, looking for one available in the UK, as shipping from abroad could be a bit steep. Does anyone have a kit they are happy to part with?
